Profit margin.... ? You can get the real thing, you just have to know what to ask for. Like everything else I guess.What concerns me is -someone- is passing off the chinese junk to dealerships. This is a Bad Thing.
I've found that the "new" BOSCH condensers are not too cool either. The ends of the clamp will not compress together far enough requiring a longer screw be substituted. Even then, when tightened, the mounting screw hits the clamp of the condenser causing it to not seat correctly unless really torqued down hard. It's a minor annoyance to have to stop and find a screw when you've got the one that held on the old condenser, but why do they do this stuff?!?
